GMHBA will offer the Employee Benefit Program to all BAE Systems Applied Intelligence employees as long as their individual employment contract permits. This is an excellent opportunity for BAE Systems employees to receive a subsidised Health Insurance product.
The private health insurance rebate won’t be applied to the fully subsidised product - Bronze Hospital Plus Corporate ($500 excess) with Bronze Extras Set Benefits - as BAE Systems are paying the full gross amount excluding any Lifetime Health Cover loadings. Depending on your taxable income, you may be entitled to a refund when submitting your end of financial year tax return.
For those employees who upgrade their cover, you can apply your nominated rebate tier if you are eligible for the rebate. GMHBA recommends that you discuss any tax implications with your financial advisor.
Call 1300 035 786 or alternatively email email@example.com
To be eligible for the fully subsidised private health insurance program you must have full Medicare Eligibility. GMHBA Hospital covers are specifically designed for people who have full Medicare Eligibility. These covers will not meet the cost of public hospital treatment, medical treatment or diagnostic services for people who do not have full Medicare eligibility. Temporary residents of Australia who do not have full Medicare eligibility should consider alternative health insurance arrangements.
When a member has Private Health Insurance, a rebate amount is either claimable against the policy or on the fully subsidised program no government rebate is claimed against the membership. At the end of the financial year a Tax Statement is sent through to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) to reflect against your tax return. If you have transferred over to GMHBA from another fund, your previous fund will send through your tax statement information to the ATO on your behalf. Tax Statements only reflect monies received against a membership in that financial year, as BAE Systems pay GMHBA quarterly and in arrears, your FY18-19 tax return may not include the amounts received by BAE Systems and will be amended for your next tax return FY19-20.
When employees leave BAE Systems an email is sent to us directly by BAE Systems HR Department informing us of the employees last day. GMHBA will then attempt to get in contact with you and discuss your options. These policies will be moved over to our retail operations team from the day after your last day of employment with BAE Systems. Note: We will never just terminate your policy, we will always endeavour to reach you and correspondence will be sent accordingly.
GMHBA fund members are responsible for ensuring their premiums are up to date. Membership will cease when premiums fall into arrears of more than two months after the premium due date. To claim benefits, a fund member must be financial at the time of incurring the expense for the service or treatment.
